* NYSC denies declaring holiday for Corps Members
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Lagos State Secretariat has denied declaring 20th January, 2019 to 6th January, 2020 as Corps members’ work free days.
According to a letter signed by the NYSC Lagos State Coordinate, Mr Sunday Aroni, the declaration is mischievous and never from his office.
He said that Corps members are not allowed to travel outside their States of service without permission to embark on such trip.
“Any Corps member that wishes to travel outside the State MUST apply in writing through the Local Government Inspector and the employer, and receive a written approval from the State Coordinator before embarking on such trip”, he said.
Below is his full statement;
“RE: LETTER OF NOTICE To ALL PLACES OF PRIMARY ASSIGNMENT
“The attention of the management has been drowned to a mischievous letter with the above subject, purportedly signed by the Director – General of NYSC, Brigadier General S. Ibrahim issuing a 17-day leave of absence to Corps members from Friday 20th December, 2019 to Monday 6th January, 2020.
“2. The NYSC Secretariat, Lagos State wishes to disassociate itself from the letter in its entirety as it is a misleading semblance of a document that emanated from the office of the Director General and the NYSC Secretariat, Lagos State.
“3. For an avoidance of doubt, any Corps member that wishes to travel outside the State MUST apply in writing through the Local Government Inspector and the employer, and receive a written approval from the State Coordinator before embarking on such trip.
“4. In view of this, Corps employers and the general public are to disregard the letter as Corps members continue to carry out their duties according to laid procedures.
“5. Thank you
